Scientific reasons why bus that planged in ocean took long to sink compared to saloon car

By - - [General]

Density = mass / volume: a bus/ship displaces large volume of water relative to its mass compared to a car. The higher the volume of displaced water the greater the uptrust exerted by water on the object. 

The hollow space under the passengers floor played a key role in buoyancy of that bus.

That longer time it was on the surface of water tells us there was no opening in the floor of the bus for water to enter.
